Easy Black Bean Dip
Are you ready for some football? The Super Bowl is on Sunday and we are gearing up for our annual party. Every year we have friends over to watch the game, commercials, and to eat good food. That is usually the highlight of the day:)
This year we are making Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde with lots of tasty sides. Chips, salsa, guacamole, a fresh fruit tray, Cilantro Lime Rice, and this Easy Black Bean Dip are all on the menu. I am still pondering dessert, but I am pretty sure cookies will make an appearance. You can’t have a party without cookies and Josh is begging for Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sounds good to me:)
If you are still finalizing your Super Bowl party menu, make sure you add this Easy Black Bean Dip. It only takes 5 minutes to make. I am not joking. I bet you could even make this dip blindfolded. It’s that easy!
To make the dip, all you have to do is put black beans, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice, and some spices in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Boom! You have a tasty party dip that is full of flavor and good for you too!
We like to sprinkle cotija cheese on top of the dip before serving. It spruces up the dip a bit. I will admit this dip is not the prettiest, but who cares. Looks aren’t everything!
We serve our Easy Black Bean Dip with tortilla chips, cut up veggies, and crackers. We also like to use this Easy Black Bean Dip as a filling for quesadillas. This dip is Caleb approved. He always ends up with a cute bean face:)
Get your game face on and make Easy Black Bean Dip for Super Bowl Sunday!
